You should be able to see an identification tag on top of the bell housing.Look under the hood where tanny and engine meet and it should ne right there on the top.
The top line will be something like PNB-CA or PNA-EZ
The second line is the model and it will be something like 2F1P-AA.
The very bottom line is the serial number on left and model number on the right.
You can also look on the door plate and find the bottom line look for the letter under TR it will be L for AX4S and X for 4F50N (AX4N)
Although I have seen these be wrong so try and get the number off of the plate.

What size belt do I need to bypass Mercury Sable AC Compressor

I had to do the same thing on my Toyota Avalon. I used a flexible cloth measuring tape to measure around the pulleys (minus the A/C, of course). I had to cut the pulley off the Avalon A/C compressor because of interference issues. You may or may not have to do the same.

How do you replace an alternator on 2001

I would need to know what trim model this car is. If it is an LS or LS Premium it is located on the lower passenger side of the car next to the frame and will require a flywheel holding tool(which is incredibly specialized and chances are you do not have one lying around) you will have to rent this tool from a parts store. You must remove the windshield wiper fluid container out of the way in order to get to the bolts on the top of the alternator. You will also have to remove the passenger side tire and the splashguards in order to get to the bottom of the alternator to remove the bottom bolts, remove the alternator, and place the flywheel holding tool to prevent the camshaft from spinning while you try to pull the alternator. This repair will take nearly a day to do, and also requires a special wrench size for a couple of the bolts besides the flywheel tool. I did it once and swore to myself to never do it again because of how much time and effort it took. If you have a LS or LS Premium just take it to the dealership because this is a hefty task and highly frustrating all at the same time.
